It's the end of the summer and I have two pots that have dead flowers. Am I the only one out there that kills their beautiful flowers? They look pathetic, I know.
I had these two pots on my back porch, but I think they must have gotten too much sun and gotten too hot. But, I also have some really nice looking pots too.
So as I was browsing through the adds the other day, I saw Lowe's had their mums on sale 9/1 to 9/5 for $.50. So I thought for just a couple bucks I might be able to resurrect these flower pots. I went to Lowe's and came home with this.
I bought ten, 1 pint mums that were 3 different colors for only $5.00 and some change. I almost bought more, but figured I should start out with these first. I immediately came home and started filling in the gaps in my pots that had dead spots and of course those two pots that were completely dead.
In a week, I'm sure they'll look just beautiful all opened up, well unless I kill them before that. But for $.50 each, I figured I couldn't go wrong. So stock up this weekend - go to Lowe's.
Also while we were there, all their outdoor furniture was on clearance 50% off. So if you are in need of some patio furniture or chairs - now is the time. I checked out their outdoor decor as well, and found this cute little lantern, it's probably about 8 inches tall, for $3.00. They had a bunch of them at my Lowe's. I bought only one, but thought it would be perfect to go with some of my fall decor. For now I put in on the picnic table.
I found something else too, but I'll have to show you another day. Oh, and they have Halloween decor out too. My 2 year old had a blast pushing all the buttons. He especially loved the motion activated, life size witch - but he was carfefull not to get too close to it.
